Watch Deaf people's memories of life in wartime Britain during World War II

6m 13s

Documentary (2014). In World War II: Unheard Memories, Deaf people tell their previously hidden stories about living in wartime Britain in their own language, British Sign Language. After the original two episodes were broadcast, there were six clips of remarkable stories that didn't make it into the final programmes. In this short documentary, about life in wartime Britain, Fred Cuddeford from London remembers work ending early because of the air raids, Gloria Pullen from Bristol explains how her Deaf family were alerted to emergencies, and Bernard Hatton from Rochdale tells how he had to test his gas mask.

You can watch the original two episodes; Episode 1 here and Episode 2 here.
